Here's a couple of examples from a couple of different recent shows. 1st example is with Earth Drive on slightly along with a K120, and 2nd and 3rd examples are without the Earth Drive, but with a Beyma Liberty. :-)

Carvin neck through with Super II (split north coil) and Waldo Buffer > SMS Classic (Jerry Mod) > Lexicon mx200 (dedicated reverb) > Earth Drive (slightly on) > Mosvalve 962 > K120 (single). Overdrive is Boss OD-2 (w/out turbo selected).

Apologies for dbl posting but thought I'd add here too. Our Dead On Live Winterland Ballroom Oct 74 Wall of Sound show that we did Halloween at the Paramount Theater in Asbury Park NJ. Featured the material and vibe of the Dead movie soundtrack and Steal Your Face releases. I learned some Jerry stuff note for note and just jammed a bunch too, as did the rest of the band. Just used amp and wah wah pedal, no fx. Louis Electric Captain Trips head through original Mac 2300 through 4 JBL K 120's, and used a Scarlet Fire strat set up Wolf, that I borrowed for the show. Enjoy, we did!

Howdy ya'll,

Here's my "club" rig:

Parts Strat (Trem rout Alder Body w/ Warmoth neck) Super II (split north coil) > CAE CB1 > Modified Mesa/Boogie Mk1c (Reissue) > JBL e120.

"I Know I'll be OK" and "Sugaree" are good examples of the clean tone.

That's fantastic strat Jerry tone and playing. Could you provide more specs on your guitar (body, fret board, bridge etc.) ?

Thanks

Sounds great! Those CS69's seemed to sound just right. what settings are you using on each piece of equipment and what model lexicon are you using? how is it all wired up? what mods if any do you have in the sms classic? where is the gain set on the blaster? and lastly, do you feel a thinness when playing the higher registers below the 12th fret?

Thanks fellas and Merry Christmas to you all! SMS settings are pretty standard gain around 12-1 o'clock treble all the way, mids 1-2oclock, touch of bass. From Sms>lexicon mx200>carvin. Lexicon is set on large hall with the mix at about 10(still working on it). Recording is a multitrack board with an audience mic mix, so I've added a little rev to some tracks. The blaster is set to the lowest gain setting. My strat is a 91 American strat plus that I got when I was 13. I just pulled the lace sensors and added the blaster.

Finally ready to post here--it's been a fun journey to get to this point, beginning last summer.

PRS Custom 24>Super II's>OBEL>Wald TPC-1>'73 Twin Silverface w/Preamp tap>MC2100 (stock)>E-120>SM57.

This is a new recording with the recapped Mcintosh MC2100. I added keys.

Great Clip Mattman!, quick question, when you went to your dirty tone for your lead, were you switching on your OBEL to bring your distortion? or were switching to from single coil to humbucker and getting the dirty tone from the increase in gain from the humbucker causing the preamp to add dirt? Just curious, sounds great though! I love all these clips, peeps here know their gear!!
